AT­LANTIC

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

Di­rected by Ris­teard O’Domh­naill O’Domh­naill, di­rec­tor of The Pipe, widens his scope for a study of how the North At­lantic’s re­sources (fish and oil, most con­spic­u­ously) are be­ing mis­used. In the west of Ire­land and in New­found­land, fish­er­men fight back against quo­tas and the ad­vance of su­per­trawlers. In Nor­way, their col­leagues worry about dis­rup­tive seis­mic test­ing by oil ex­plor­ers. There is, maybe a lit­tle too much go­ing on, but At­lantic is beau­ti­fully shot, sin­cere and pow­ered by jus­ti­fi­able rage. Club, QFT, Belfast; IFI, Dublin, 82 min
